    Re: Hive in major trouble! SHB

    Not SHB damage. I would consider it may have swarmed and then failed to re-Queen successfully. Or possibly just went queenless and failed at re-queening. Could be in the process of re-queening.

    Re: Amitraz

    I think you are confusing apistan (fluvinate) with Apivar(amitraz). I do not think that there has been any development of resistance to amitraz. It was pulled because of improper dosage killing bees,...

    Re: How much Fructose in Honey

    The higher the fructose content of honey, the slower it is to crystallize. Tupelo honey has a higher fructose to glucose ratio than most honeys, and that is why it seldom crystallizes.

  21. Re: Why did this package die? (Sorry for Long Windedness)

    Looking at the photo, I tend to agree with the supplier. These bees were wet. I don't see starvation. What kind of top feeder are you using? Could it have leaked and drenched the bees. If they...
